  • Unique word: Ahoy, a greeting, usually used by people in ships/boats.
  • Expert advice: A common mistake I see players make with Y words is assuming the Y will be at the end. Of the circa 600 valid 4-letter Y words, only around 50% end in a Y. The remaining have the Y at the beginning or somewhere in between.
